Hi Guys,

Can anyone suggest why this isnt working?

$(".Suggestion").click(function() {
	SuggestedCompany = $(this).text();
	$('#Company').val(SuggestedCompany)
	$('#ExtraDetails').load('/lists/scripts/php/load.extra.php?Company='+SuggestedCompany+'');

});

Open in new window


It adds the value to the input perfectly... but doesnt load the file correctly

Many Thanks for help

It removes content in #ExtraDetails so I assume the load function is working...

However it doesnt load the content of load.extra.php, regardless of passed variable

yes that's the goal of using load

However it doesnt load the content of load.extra.php, regardless of passed variable
OK, could you propose a link to see your page?
Try this and let me know what you get in the alert box
$(".Suggestion").click(function() {
	SuggestedCompany = $(this).text();
	$('#Company').val(SuggestedCompany)
var url = '/lists/scripts/php/load.extra.php?Company='+SuggestedCompany+'';
alert( url );
	$('#ExtraDetails').load(url);

});

Open in new window

Hi Leakim,

Sorry for delay...

That alerts the correct information...

/lists/scripts/php/load.extra.php?Company=ACAL BFI UK

If i change the load url from:

var url = '/lists/scripts/php/load.extra.php?Company='+SuggestedCompany+'';

to a manual entry of:

var url = '/lists/scripts/php/load.extra.php?Company=test';

the load works fine...

Cant understand it

the error is due to the space

$("#where_to_put").load("url_to_load   what_to_get_from_page_loaded"); // see the space here
